welcome to my virtual inspiration board!
a romanian born, chicago based artist with a background in architecture and a passion for gathering community around the table; my work explores the life and history contained in discarded vintage books, antique lace and doilies, kitchen scraps and other assorted bits of found objects! as i work these collected fragments into abstract paintings, i allow their stories to work on my own biases of brokenness and wholeness, of being and becoming. my work is a relentless search for poetry in the debris, an affirmation of life and possibility.
i am interested in emotion, capturing and savoring unique moments in time and space, the simultaneous absence and presence of all colors, embedded memory of objects, texture, and a raw & feminine aesthetic.
when we’re not creating, my musician husband and i are doing our best at feeding our friends delicious local food.
thank you for stopping by!
